About Stay With Me
A mysterious letter alluding to a secret in her parents’ past brings Genevieve Woodward back to her Blue Ridge Mountains hometown, but she’s also in need of a break from a high-profile career that has left her dangerously burned out and concealing a powerful secret of her own. When she wakes inside an unfamiliar cottage to find the confused owner staring down at her, she can no longer ignore the fact that she needs help.
Sam Turner has embraced his sorrow and his identity as an outsider. The solitary, disciplined life he lives on his historic farm is the life he’s chosen for himself. The last thing he wants is to rent his cottage to a woman as troubled as she is talkative. Yet, he can’t force himself to turn her away right when she needs him most.
As Genevieve researches her family’s history and her and Sam’s emotions deepen, they will have to let go of the facades and loneliness they’ve clung to and allow light to illuminate every hidden truth.

There’s a reason I read every Becky Wade book as soon as possible … LOL! She’s such an incredible author; I feel every new release is better than the last, and my next favorite.
Stay With Me has a different feel to it than other Wade books; at times it read almost more like Beth Vogt’s. (Not a bad thing, because, well, have you read Vogt’s Thatcher Sisters series? Incredible!)
The mystery of Genevieve’s parents’ past plays a larger role in Stay With Me than I expected — and I loved it. Wade could easily write a solely mystery book/series and be very successful!
Sam and Genevieve are both very relatable characters. Sam maintains Wade’s swoonworthy-hero norm (yay), and shows excellent character development, as does Genevieve. Stay With Me deals with some challenging topics, and invites the reader to ask questions about truth, forgiveness, and going public with weakness (and, frankly, sizable failure). While I’ve not gone through similar situations myself, I felt both Genevieve’s and her parents’ struggles were dealt with authentically, graciously, and tastefully. Same with Sam’s past and the Miracle 5 stories interspersed between chapters.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
